Tierra del Fuego: Prepare a Patagonian king crab lunch

Visit Us

Prepare a Patagonian king crab lunch

Here’s a way of really diving in and absorbing the culture of Patagonia’s litoral. Spend a day in a remote, traditional seaside fishing village, hunting out your own king crab and cooking it in a private home, while learning the family's culinary secrets.

Cocooned in a four-wheel-drive, follow a gravel road through dense native peat bog-pitted forest to Puerto Almanza, Argentina's southernmost fishing port. The history of nearby Navarino Island and the various controversial border issues with neighbour Chile is fascinating – your guide will tell you all about it.

Press on, shadowing the coast of the Beagle Channel to reach a small village, Puerto Pirata, dedicated to artisan-style fishing of king crab, crayfish, mussels, and other shellfish which flourish in this area. Take to a small boat to participate in the fishing of the spider crab; upon your return to the village you’ll learn how to prepare it in Patagonian style, cooked in sea water. Delicious!
